LUCY SPECIAL: Upcoming RAI Education Outreach Events

The RAI's Education Department is organising some great events in the next few months for A-level students, teachers, career advisers and mature students. Space is limited so it is recommended to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!

Wednesday June 8th 2011: A-level Anthropology Teachers' Day

The RAI´s Education Committee is organising a special teachers' training day for those already involved in teaching the Anthropology A-level or who are planning to teach the A-level in the near future. The event will take place on June 8th at the Royal Anthropological Institute, located at 50 Fitroy St. London W1T-5BT.

The A-level Anthropology Teachers’ Day is intended to bring together teachers with members of the
Royal Anthropological Institute’s Education Committee – professional anthropologists who have
been involved in the development and support of the course. This will be the first meeting of many to come and will provide an opportunity for people to meet, to discuss progress so far and issues arising, and to plan future meetings. There will be ample opportunity for participants to meet informally, over coffee and lunch, as well as more direct inputs on issues such as
resources, the project activity in Unit 4, and a Q&A session with Senior AQA staff.

The day will include sessions on:
- resources for AS and A2
- teaching strategies, methods and ethnographic case studies for Unit 3 and 4
- discussions and experiences of AS
- a Q&A session on the examination procedure with the AQA examination team.
and more!
